December 21st turned out to be the best Longest Night of the past three years. Our 3rd Annual Longest Night demonstrated that events only get better with time. Starting with the luminaria that lighted the way to the Gazebo on the Dow. Tremendous turnout by the Lisbon High School National Honor Society and Profile students established a new participation record for the event. The music of the GrassFed Band playing “cool” bluegrass resulted in lots of laughter and toe-tapping entertainment. We are most grateful to Caldwell Banker Lin-Wood Real Estate and Mascoma Savings Bank as the Premiere sponsors of our event. Thanks also to Woodsville Guaranty Bank, Presby Construction, Gale River Motel & Garnet Hill for their support. Sandwiches and hot soups donated by Subway of Littleton, Chef Joe’s Catering, and the Dutchtreat Restaurant insured that no one went hungry. As the major fundraising event of the year, the generous support of our sponsors and the dedication of our participants in obtaining pledges in support of their night on the Dow enables the Bancroft House to continue our mission of providing shelter to those in need.
